Digisahayam aims to provide primary and tertiary-level physician consultations through assisted telemedicine services. The platform embodies the potential to significantly diminish disparities in healthcare access and bolster health outcomes for those underserved. It is a consistent and innovative platform that embeds electronic health records, an in-built clinical decision support system, and numerous state-of-the-art digital health technologies to provide a physician with comprehensive information regarding the patient’s medical history and present illnesses.
